Beginner Spanish Practice MP3 CourseBeginner Spanish Practice Video Course

This is an interactive Spanish video where you have the opportunity to practice Spanish at beginner level with a native Spanish speaker.

In this Spanish lesson we will practice more about making comparisons in Spanish using a wide range of Spanish adjectives. This time we will be concentrating on Spanish irregular comparatives. In the previous lesson we looked at the rules for making comparisons in Spanish using regular Spanish adjectives. Most adjectives follow the rules applied to making comparisons using regular adjectives and these rules are relatively simple to use and remember. Unfortunately, however, there are (as is almost always the case) a few irregularities to the rules. We learned many of these Spanish irregular comparatives in the original theory video lesson and now we will see how much you remember and how well you can use what you have learned.

Please try to watch the video first before looking at the lesson notes. Answers to all tasks involved in the lesson will be given at the end of the post. Try not to look at the answers until you have tried a good few times to give your own responses.

This lesson practices the information taught in Beginner Spanish Lesson 40: Comparisons in Spanish with irregular comparatives from my Beginner Spanish Course.
